Historically, ready-to-drink products have not been well respected, but every day the quality improves. Laughing Glass Cocktails continues to make an impact with their all natural and organic, super premium line of margaritas.

"I don’t think there are many ready-to-serve products out there that receive points ratings, we may be the only one!”

There’s only one thing we love more than a refreshing margarita on a sunny afternoon - and that’s an award-winning, yet affordable, ready-to-pour margarita. While it sounds like an oxymoron, this Holy Grail does exist… with Laughing Glass Cocktails.

Recently, Laughing Glass took two impressive points ratings from Blue Lifestyle: 91 points for their party-ready Original Margarita, and 92 points for their mighty Pomegranate Margarita.

Winning awards is becoming a habit for Laughing Glass Cocktails, but they are not letting anything go to their heads, "I don’t think there are many ready-to-serve products out there that receive points ratings, we may be the only one!” says Laughing Glass co-founder Carey Clahan. “We worked hard to create the best margarita in the rtd category so we’re thrilled to be recognized – especially by the venerated contributors at Blue Lifestyle.”

For more than 40 years, Blue Lifestyle, under the guidance of Anthony Dias Blue, James Beard Award-winner and former Wine & Spirits Editor of Bon Appetit Magazine, has been reviewing and rating wines and spirits. Every year Mr. Blue and his associates taste and comment on over 5,000 wine and 500 spirits. Some of these reviews appear in various outlets, particularly The Tasting Magazine and The SOMM Journal.

With the Blue Lifestyle reviews, and wins at the Denver International Spirits Awards, the SF World Spirits Awards, and a Platinum, Best of Class Award at the Spirits International Prestige Awards, Laughing Glass continues an impressive run. “It’s always exciting to get this kind of recognition,” says co-founder Sydney Rainin, “It means a lot to us.”

At the heart of Laughing Glass is a craft, super premium, blanco tequila, which forms the base of both margaritas. “We did not like the bulk tequilas available, so decided to find an artisan distillery to create one that met with our high standards,” continues Ms. Rainin.

“We’ve been noticing a shift in the category,” adds Clahan, “Historically ready to drink products have not been very good, but every day we see more and more high-quality entrants. I hope we continue to knock the well-known, but not well-made products off-the-shelf. It’s an uphill battle, but consumers deserve quality and choice in this convenient category.”

Laughing Glass margaritas are made with their super premium tequila, all natural and organic ingredients, and organic agave nectar for a touch of sweetness - and it is low calorie. “It’s like a boutique, restaurant-quality cocktail, but at an affordable price; the perfect synthesis of ancient craft tequila and modern tastes and convenience.”

You can find Laughing Glass at over 900 grocery accounts in CA and NV, including Safeway, Whole Foods, Ralph’s, Vons, Albertson’s, Pavilions, Mollie Stones’, and Nugget Markets, just to name a few, and more states coming soon.
